Produced by art historian and former New York Times art critic Bridget L. Goodbody, Ph.D., Art Intelligence is more than an art history book on a touch screen. It’s a totally new way to discover art. Each edition of Art Intelligence takes you to an artist or movement and drops you at the door to explore: high res images, editorial, video footage and more bring art to life.
Their most recent app Keith Haring: The Politics of Dancing celebrates the life and work of the acclaimed artist. Known for his groundbreaking street art, political activism, and community awareness, the app features a gallery of his life’s work, a timeline of world events that influenced his work, quotes, interviews, videos, a social element that allows users to comment and discuss and much much more.
In January Art Intelligence released Patricia Piccinini: Mother Love (The New Naturalism), the first edition of Art Intelligence, which combines two of the most important trends of our time: the emergence of tablet technologies that allow us to make faster connections and share bigger ideas about life, art, the world, and ourselves and a rapidly growing industry of genetic sequencing, splicing, and cloning of animals, plants, and even humans.
Art Intelligence’s first-of-its kind interface makes your experience of Piccinini’s art personal, exploratory, and resonant, so you can reach your own conclusions about the world behind it. The app features: 1.) a Gallery of gorgeous, zoomable, high-resolution images and videos of Piccinini’s artwork, 2.) a Timeline comprised of three interactive streams that link her art with the historic events and cultural phenomena that inspired it, from genetics to car culture to motherhood 3.) Connections, a personal brain/mind map for navigating between the art and the world at large, arranged by themes such as childhood, cyborgs, religion and more, and 4.)Conversations, a lively in-app forum that allows you to share ideas and opinions with other users.
“At Art Intelligence, we believe that art is revolutionary, evolutionary, and powerful,” explains Dr. Goodbody. “Our mission is to bring art, people, and ideas together so that we, as a tribe, can create connections to push life further.” With that in mind, the Art Intelligence team, is looking for feedback and input from other art lovers and app users to help develop upcoming editions of Art Intelligence.
